In all its beauty and simplistic living, the country and its people share a like mindedness in respect to the environment and see the value in conserving the natural commodities of the country. Ongoing Conservation initiatives are gradually educating the younger generations of the value in protecting these priceless natural resources and evolving to support the needs of local communities. We here at Properties in Costa Rica know the value in promoting and educating our clients on the importance of sustainable land use, renewable practices and preservation of the natural landscape. Within this site you will find properties which focus on environmentally friendly design, alternative energy generation, conservation of watersheds and rainforests, and sustainable development. These are unique offerings for those in search of an investment which optimizes and protects the flora and fauna of Costa Rica.
Private residences and hotels which are built to compliment natural forest and terrain with little impact on the surrounding ecology are not only a wise decision, but allow for an authentic lifestyle in touch with nature, which is a rare commodity in itself. For investors who see the value in protecting nature yet still want to generate a return, hotels, yoga retreats, or eco-adventure destinations are offerings which thrive in the ecotourism mecca of Costa Rica. The diversity of Costa Rica offers purchasing options for all walks of life, yet one cannot deny the value of the natural elements which accompany these properties.
For those in search of the "pura vida" (pure life), it cannot be achieved without the respect for nature, and the recognition that making sound investments into the future of the environment is what will create the purest kind of living for not only the present but the future generations to come.
